He consumed 18 possessions.
Five times, missed a FG
Five times, turned it over
Three times, went to the line (hit 3 of 6 FTs)
Three times, handed out an assist (including one for a three)
Two times, hit a FG

That's 14 points in 18 possessions. And he was also stripped out of bounds once or twice more than that.

LMAO at the people trashing Kobe. He's the only one on this team besides Metta that cares about winning. He gives it all each game. This team would only have one win if it were not for Kobe. Maybe you should blame Pau and Howard for disappearing. Maybe then, the game wouldn't come down to last second hero shots from Kobe.

Not sure how you came to that conclusion.... if Kobe were on the bench right now we'd be down 20.

To be fair to the other guys, it was them who got us in the game in both halves.

We've been -22 with Kobe on the floor...not that we should value that stat completely but still.

D12 needs to try.... I've watched the last 2 minutes of the 3rd and the entire 4th and he's not even trying... The last 3 offensive boards Memphis got were in his area and he didn't even try on any of them.....

That's a nice breakdown on Dwight. Thanks.

Nash can't come back soon enough.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

MWP and Kobe again look to be the only ones playing through this adversity. Jamison seemed to have a good game but after our high priced talent did squat.

to be fair to kobe, this is the first time that stat is like that. I've been paying attention to that stat all season long and his +/- is just insanely positive.

Pau Gasol is bad, really bad, no joke.

Jamison defended Z-Bo better than Pau smh (Just look at Zach production in the first half compare to the 2nd half)

Kobe pulling a Lebron, leaving early. We don't leave early when we win. That's poor sportsmanship.

But whatever, a poor effort all around.

man what a bad game i just saw. but the surprise is we only lost by 8 points. wow i am stunned . gasol got what he deserved tonight a first class bench seat . i hope lakers will bounce back tommorrow but it s obivious that we need a true point guard like nash without him i don t know.... maybe try to get delonte west . i know he is known as a troublemaker but also is a very good player.

in all honesty, he needs to do a better job of getting the bigs involved by getting assists. Just has NOT been the same facilitator as he was when we ran over people....


WTF?! Firstly, he had a trip-double the other day full of assists and he has been dishing them out all year in the absence of Nash and Blake. Secondly, why should he STILL have to be the facilitator?! Sure Morris is learning, but you're telling me Duhon hasn't been round the block - what he can't run the team?! Lastly, Kobe still had more assists than any other Laker in this game.....wow...

Better to be safe than sorry. A 50% healthy Nash wouldn't save the team.

How many bricks did Gasol put up when Kobe set him up for an open jumper?

I hope kobe sees the similarities between the last two losses. 4 assts, 3 assts. dwight CAN NOT get his own shot consistently, and pau DEFINITELY CAN NOT get his own shot consistently. If kobe doesn't set them up, we likely lose. Simple. Either kobe realizes this and adjusts, or we wait on nash...

Kobe played like last year, tried to win by himself, didn't get the bigs involved, missed easy shots...
